Lopez, are you certain that there is NO protrusion between the first set of book lungs? (the ones on the top of the pic)
I can't tell from the pic, but IMO, it almost looks like a female to me, and that the flap is just stuck to the bottom of the molt. Make sure that you've unfolded everything.

It's hard to tell, the picture is blurry across the section that we are looking at. Do you have another pic?

You'd be correct if it is, and not if it isn't.

Looks to me like there is a flap between the 1st set of booklungs, and to me that means female :D

There is definitely no flap - what you can see between the front set of booklungs is a recess, a crease, not a raised flap.

The skin is definitely completely unfolded.
